I'm thinking brown switches, because they feel like blues but are not as loud? Macros are not needed at all, definitely like backlighting. Not sure what TKL or 104 is?

I have Razer products and have had good experiences with them and feel confident in their products. However you'll find those that dislike them just like any other products you'll have different opinions. I say if you have a retail store you can try typing on a showroom model and get the feel for it to make up your own mind if it feels good to you or not.
I've finally narrowed out the playing field and I don't have anything against Razer Stealth versions for brown MX Cherry keys I'm looking for but I think I've decided to go for a new Ducky Shine 2 when they come out about next month.
They are tough to scout down for purchase and inventory is limited. Some good links to look at for mechanical boards would be Mechanical Keyboards.com or Tankguys.

Thank you for all the info. I'm glad to hear you've had good experiences with Razer products, to me personally that Black Widow felt good, but it was just too loud for my liking. I wish I had a store available to walk in and test some out, but nothing really like that here. I mean there's the Best Buy down the road, but I really doubt they have a wide selection, if any, of good mechanical keyboards? I'll check out the websites though, thanks for that.

EDIT: Whoa, you're right about the limited inventory, just checking this site real fast and they are all out of stock.

TKL is tenkey less , its if you want a numpad or not .

And I just bought a razor ultimate as an in between keyboard , im extremely happy with the keys and how they feel and sound , night and day compared to dome for sure , its the glossy board and one of the LEDs ( print screen ) decided to stop working after about a week.. I really want a ducky with browns I think , or a CM storm ..

You're asking if blue cherry is so noisy that it disturbs you during gaming?

Quick question...

My keycaps from WASD arrived yesterday. I ordered the dark gray ones. I'm not sure if I received the light gray ones though. I was expecting them to be a bit darker. What do you think?

Those appear about right. The light gray is about as dark as the old school beige keys that keyboards used to have, just with a gray hue instead of tan. I wish they were darker too.

Razer seems to be really hated around here. It's weird I have had absolutely no problems with any of my razer gear. I have a Salmosa mouse I bought off of woot in 2007 for $13.37 (woot's so clever). It was refurb and everything and I'm still using the mouse today. It rode around in my backpack with my laptop for 4.5 years through college and now it is being used as my gaming mouse, still works as good as it ever has.

The black widow is getting close to a year old and no problems with it either. To each his own I guess?

I could use some help right now... I've got the CM quickfire rapid, and I may or may not have spilt a little coffee on it: the lower right corner to be exact. I pulled keys out and wiped the coffee off and plugged it in, worked like it used to. But after I came from a walk with my dog it didn't work anymore. It registers keys wrong, for example if I press "a" or "z" it registers it (single keystroke) as "za", and same with most of the 2nd and 3rd row alphabets. Some keys work fine as do all the leds and such.
The thought of coffee on the mini-usb connector crossed my mind, it could have caused some kind of short or something. Could also be completely unrelated... Damn.

Any ideas? Think I'll let it dry for the rest of the day and if it works tomorrow.
I'm already fed up with this rubber dome, and this post is the first thing I've written on this keyboard.
